Hi @Rlaurence83! So glad to hear you were able to get this one solved! 

Would you be up for sharing some details on how you solved it? Did you have success using Formatter’s (Text) Extract URL transform option or did you find another way to extract the URL? I’m sure there are others in the Community who could benefit from your solution! 🙂

Ill have to have a look but i think i was doing something wrong in early stages of the Zap set up hence i didnt need the extraction url afterall

Ah, I see @Rlaurence83. Yes, if a previous step was able to supply a publicly-accessible link to the necessary file in a field, then you would just select that in the Descript action. So a Formatter action to extract the URL wouldn’t be needed at all here!
